Grilling season now underway

Grilled Bratwurst in Beer

4 onions, sliced into ½ in rounds
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 12-oz beers (Bud or MGD are best for this)
2/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp caraway seeds
10 brats
10 sub rolls

Oil and pepper onions. Whisk beer, mustard, sugar, caraway, and some pepper in 13x9 in pan. Put pan and onions on the grill (separately). Grill onions on both sides, about 8 min total. Put onions in pan. Grill brats until brown. Then move them into the pan, and cook another 15 min. Then take out and grill the brats another few minutes. Continue to cook mixture down a little, then serve the brats in the rolls with sauce and onions on top.

Happy belated birthday, bb!

Interesting approach to beer brats -- I've always simmered them in beer from the get-go, and only given them a bit of time directly on the grill at the end to char 'em up. Certainly lets the beery goodness (or badness, if Miller or Bud are used) soak through!
